Whole Body Vibration
One session $10
Package of Five Sessions $40
Whole body vibration is a machine which has been designed to improve general health by providing a safe and gentle form of exercise. Stand on a oscillating platform that produces a vibration technology.
These vertical vibrations are produced with a side-alternating rocking movement, similar to walking.
Our body reacts to this natural stimulus with an involuntary reflex muscle contraction. Depending on the speed, muscles will react up to 23 times per second (approximately 11-12 contractions and 11-12 relaxations), and as the acceleration forces increase, your body will feel as though it "weighs" more. This clever technology means you can work against a far greater influence or "load" of gravity in every movement you perform. Ten minutes on the vibrational machine is equivalent to one hour of exercise.
Studies performed at NASA found that vibration technology can help prevent the dramatic muscle deterioration and bone loss astronauts experience in the weightless environment in space. Physicians who performed the NASA study believe that whole body vibration technology holds promise not only for astronauts, but for others experiencing bone or muscle deterioration as well. In fact, whole body vibration is currently being used by physical therapy centers, spas, and clinics to help alleviate the symptoms of many health issues.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO WE USE?
We use the Lifetime Vibe vibration machine. Many experts in the field of whole body vibration were consulted throughout the development of Lifetime Vibe. A team including chiropractic doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, registered nurses, and sales gave their invaluable input. Users of whole vibration machines were also interviewed and asked to test the many aspects of Lifetime Vibe over several months. All of the suggestions and ideas have been incorporated into the final look, feel, usability, and patented technology that finalized the creation of Lifetime Vibe. Lifetime Vibe is designed, engineered and manufactured in the United States. Lifetime Vibe is different from any other whole body vibration machine. The handles are designed for specific exercises to address physical limitations not allowed by other vibration machines. Lifetime Vibe is also the only vibration machine with a seat accessory designed for those who have difficulty standing or have other specific health challenges. Unlike other vibration technology fitness machines, our vibration machine's technology is particularly unique because it may achieve results for a wide range of objectives, for all ages and body types.
THERE ARE TWO MAIN TYPES OF VIBRATION AVAILABLE:
(Used by us)
pic-oscilating Oscillating vibration is the most natural vibrating movement and has the widest range of benefits. People find this type of vibration technology most comfortable and it makes sense that muscles are activated alternately as they would be in walking. This is by far the most popular type of vibration technology with many scientific studies to support it. Widely used by chiropractors, physiotherapists, trainers and doctors across the world, this type of vibration technology is suitable for all ages and health levels.
(Not Used by Us)
Very high frequency vertical micro-vibrations are created by this technology. This style of technology can be uncomfortable for some users as it does not emulate a natural movement like walking. These types of technology are not recommended for those that are not in top shape and can be very uncomfortable for older users. There are also questions about frequencies that may be too high and aggressive for the body.
